Rep. Diane Black isn't exactly an ideal target for the Democratic Party.  Her district, per Cook Political Report, has a PVI of R+21 and she first elected 2010 with 69.6% of the votes, taking over Rep. Bart Gordon who chose not to run for re-election in 2010.  In 2012, Black won re-election by an even wider margin by 76.4% and didn't face a single Democratic challenger.  Therefore, the odds aren't in the Democratic Party's favor at this point.

However, as covered our previous diaries via our group, Knowledge Democrats, TN-06 Democratic Candidate Amos Powers is still continuing on and being active on the campaign trail.

For any of you who live in TN-06 or nearby, on April 12th, Amos Powers will be appearing at a Democratic Candidate forum at Manchester, TN.  Full details of the event below:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
